Built to Spill Set Release Date for New Album, Gear Up for Another Tour

August 11, 2009  |  7:30am
There's a third, lesser-known certainty in life besides death and taxes: epic, sprawling tours courtesy of Boise alt-rock legends Built to Spill. Seems like they've been on the road more often than not since the release of 2006's You In Reverse, a trend that appears set to continue as they near the release of their seventh LP, There Is No Enemy, now confirmed for a release date of Oct. 6.

Doug Martsch and company kick off another lengthy cross-country jaunt on Aug. 20 (with labelmates The Flaming Lips, no less). The tour will then crisscross up, down and all around the lower forty-eight in the U.S., with a couple of shows in Canada to boot, going hard until late November.

There Is No Enemy is out Oct. 6 on Warner Bros. Records.
